Canon EOS M100 review

 

This stripped down system cam is just a bit too light on features

Small size ; Large sensor ; Easy to use

No viewfinder (or option to add one) ; No 4K video ; You might quickly outgrow it

It's small and produces nice photos, but M100 otherwise lacks enough truly exciting features to tempt you from your smartphone

Hands-on with Canon's entry-level mirrorless camera. Canon EOS M100.

Canon EOS M100 Review

 

For photographers who want to step up from a smartphone or compact point and shoot camera, Canon hopes that the new EOS M100 will fit the bill. The M100 replaces the roughly two-year-old M10 in Canon's mirrorless EOS lineup. The M100 is the new...
